Ruthless Support is a support gem that grants a Ruthless Blow every third attack with the supported melee attacks.


Skill functions and interactions

When supported by Multistrike Support, Ruthless blows work differently, instead of occurring every third hit, it occurs every third multistrike. This means hits from the first 2 uses (attacks 1 - 6) will be "normal blows" and all hits from the 3rd multi-strike use (attacks 7-9) will be ruthless blows.

Using this idea, Ruthless Blow may actually trigger by skill use, rather than skill attack, meaning, you will have to use the attack skill 3 times to trigger Ruthless Blow.

The Ruthless Blow counter still counts if you hit with a skill or not, for example, if you miss the first 2 hits of your supported attack, Ruthless Blow will count at your last 3rd attack, whether it be a hit or not.

Cyclone; Channeled skills: Channeled skills and cyclone can not be supported by Ruthless and will not interact with it in any way.
